Tony Danza Joins Cast of ‘The Good Cop’ on Netflix

Ten Initial Episodes Ordered

Tony Danza is returning to series television in upcoming Netflix drama “The Good Cop,” which is inspired by a format from Israeli production company YES and has been picked up for 10 episodes. Danza will play Tony Sr., a disgraced, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. He lives with his son, Tony Jr., an earnest, obsessively honest NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules. This “odd couple” become unofficial partners as Tony Sr. offers his overly-cautious son blunt, street-wise advice on everything from handling suspects to handling women.

Andy Breckman, the creator of “Monk,” will serve as showrunner and executive producer, with Randy Zisk (“Bones,” “Monk”), and Howard Klein (“The Office,” “The Mindy Project”) also serving as executive producers. Zisk will also direct the first episode. Tony Danza is a producer on The Good Cop.
